Carlow, shop for digs

Carlow Dublin Street

 

Fri 6/21/13

Arrived Thurs morning in Dublin.  Half hour wait in the line to get thru immigration, they needed the letters that I had to allow me to stay:  I must check in with the Garda in the next month or so to allow me to stay longer than 3 months.  I think they will shake me down for €300 to put the proper stamp in my passport.

Found the bus to Carlow, just had an hour to wait- long enough for a good cup of joe and some emails.  The emails paid off, we just waited for 2 minutes at the bus stop in Carlow when Patrick Dooley, the car guy drove up with a little van.  Signed the paperwork for him, and followed him to our B+B:  Red Setter Guesthouse, right downtown Carlow.  All settled in by 2 pm and headed to DinRi for a carvery lunch and a pint.  That pint was why I do not bother buying Guinness in the States.

Back to the digs and rested for an hour.  Headed out to look at some apartments.  Walked to the realtor, and on the way did some window shopping and found some other ‘estate agents’ with apartments or places to rent.

Am messing with this blog stuff, trying to learn it.  In the word of Ringo Starr, “it don’t come easy.”

Tried to calm down on the bus from airport to Carlow, so listened to a good Muddy Waters CD, Fathers and Sons.  Next time we are together, ask and I will be happy to listen to that one with you.  Fun to be on the bus thru Dublin and to be able to understand a teeny bit of what we were seeing.

The ‘full Irish’ breakfast this morning was grand.  Even the black pudding tasted fine.

Must get a phone.  Oh, and the bank too.  Interesting to put the Passumpsic and Union Bank debit cards into the ATM machine and get Euros out of it.

Carlow is very nice, on the Barrow River.  But it hurting after losing the 2 major employers, a sugar factory that used sugar beet as the  source, and a Braun plant that made Gillette razors.  Now the  regional technical college is the largest employer.  Walked around in the evening, on a walkway along the river, fishermen and girls in their rowing sculls, Carlow rowing club.  Found a Polish grocery store. 

The duty free Paddy’s as a happy hour before supper hit the spot.  Not much problem sleeping, up at 5.  The internal clock seems to have accepted different time zones. 

If you can read this, please let me know.
